Pet essentials and accessories have greatly evolved in the last few years. So much so that the average dog parent is spoilt for choice with options galore in every category. Even shopping for dog collars and leashes – the most elementary and common of all dog accessories – is no mean task. Well, we’re here to make it easier for you! Here’s a list of some of the best dog collars and leashes for you to narrow down your choices to, and select the one that best suits your and your fur baby’s needs:
Cotton Rope Dog Collar
Cotton rope dog collars – no prizes for guessing – are made of 100% cotton, typically hand-braided and spliced. These sturdy, easy-to-maintain dog collars afford several advantages. They are allergy-free, extremely comfortable on dog skin, and super-durable i.e. unlikely to fray over several washes. And they’re eco-friendly to boot!
Nylon Dog Collar
Nylon dog collars are good because they are lightweight, comfortable for most dogs, and easy to wash and maintain. If you want your pet to be fashion-forward, nylon collars should be your pick since they are available in many colours and patterns and can often be coordinated with matching leashes and personalized with embroidery. Besides, they are reasonably priced.
Own a Dachshund, Greyhound, or Collie? Go for a no-slip or Martingale collar. This type of collar provides more control over dogs, preventing them from slipping or wriggling out of the collar while walking on a leash. Equipped with a small loop, the Martingale collar tightens when your dog pulls, but never chokes due to a set limit that prevents complete closure.
As the name suggests, reflective dog collars pick up car headlights and other sources of light, allowing people to see your pooch at night and avoiding a fatal accident. Most of these collars feature reflective threading/stitching or a reflective stripe that ensures visibility at night. For sure, no other dog collar is safer during night strolls.
Cotton Rope Dog Leash
Contrary to widespread belief, a cotton rope dog leash is pretty much heavy-duty, likely to last for years with proper care. It offers other advantages as well: it is soft to touch, 100% natural, won’t cause irritation, and is a fantastic vegan, eco-friendly option. It is also affordable and easy to maintain.
Leather Dog Leash
A leather dog leash is an evergreen dog accessory that’ll never go out of fashion. Though more expensive than its nylon counterpart, a leather leash comes with undeniable pros like life-long durability – won’t fray and won’t be affected by chewing – and elegance. Additionally, it offers a very comfortable grip, changing its shape with time to suit the hands of the human handling the leash.
Retractable Dog Leash
This is a ribbon-style leash that works like an extendable measuring tape with a locking mechanism in a plastic handle that lets you lock the leash at varying degrees of length. This type of leash allows a well-behaved pet freedom to explore and trot on ahead. Do not, however, use it if your dog is over-active or easily excitable.
